1. Answer: the car will travel 240 miles in 5 hours.

Step-by-step explanation:

The formula for determining speed is expressed as

Speed = distance/time

The car moving at a constant rate, travel 96 miles in 2 hours. This means that the speed of the car is

96/2 = 48 miles per hour.

Distance = speed × time

If the car maintains this rate, the number of miles that the car will travel in 5 hours is

Distance = 5 × 48 = 240 miles.

speed = distance / time

At 96miles in 2 hours

the speed =  96miles/ 2hours  = 48miles per hour

at 5 hours, Distance = speed x time

distance =  48 x 5 =  240miles

Step-by-step explanation:

step 1 : determine the speed per hour

speed = distance / time

step 2 : after getting the speed of the car per hour, the distance cover in 5hours can now be determine using

distance = speed x time
